Hi, I’m Dr. Uma Lerner. I’m a reproductive psychologist in SF.
I know a lot of people take birth control for different reasons besides preventing pregnancy. What are some of those reasons?
In addition to preventing pregnancy, you can take it for:
💢 painful periods or cramps
🩸 regulating periods or even just skipping a period
🥚 PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome
🏳️🌈 gender identity consolidation
🌋 treating acne
😰 prevention of migraines, and
😣 stability of mood.
